On November 23, 1962 — Golden Glove Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Maury Wills, whose 104 stolen bases broke a major league season-record set by Ty Cobb, wins the NL Most Valuable Player Award. In a controversial vote, Wills beats out teammate Tommy Davis, who led the NL with a .346 batting average and 153 RBI. The Dodgers will win 102 games and their attempt to capture a pennant, an effort that fell short in a three-game playoff against San Francisco.
